“Let's get together....”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

This a typical bar, café, pub you can find in Paris, Lyon, London, Cambridge, Antwerp, Gent, Brussels, New Orleans or whatever city in any country where locals come to get a drink, something small to eat, etc. L'Incontro is a bar in Volterra where locals come for a quick cup of coffée, a snack or some sweetness and in the mean time read a newspaper, La Gazetta dello Sport etc. It is not a touristtrap like many other places in Volterra (it use to be different a few years ago before some became aware of the tourists and a lot of "decent" shops changed in cheap pizzabars). Even the icecream is much better than in many of the other places. So as a visitor (i.e. tourist) you have to keep the authentic spirit of the place in mind and go there for a cup of coffee and some sweets and enjoy the athmosphere of the place.

“Bar with Wi-fi”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Great bar and about the only one we found with wi-fi so that we could check on things to see and do since we forgot our guide book. Bars and restaurants with wi-fi are seriously lacking all over Tuscany and Venice.

“Great Pastries”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We didn't have a chance to try the gelato since we were there on a cold May morning. I do recommend stopping into L'Incontro for a coffee and some of their great pastries. We sampled several different types with our morning coffee, including cannolli and a local cookie which translates into English as the "Bones Of The Dead".
Reasonably priced, too. Stop in when you are in Volterra.

“Wonderful oasis”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

During out time in the area we used LÍncontro as a base to catch up on emails and research the area whilst enjoying a glass of wine or a pastry and coffee. The staff were always friendly and the atmosphere relaxing.
